CEP offered a free D.C. Youth Action Camp in March to provide free opportunities for youth when the public school system was closed for students. The day was filled with new activities and experiences. Our pitch workshop was led by Dr. Shawn Jegede of Three Sixteen Consulting LLC. Youth learned how to design speeches to market business ideas, promote changes in their communities, raise awareness on environmental issues and so much more!
The Community Enrichment Project hosted a "Super Leaders Read" reading circle at Capitol View Library in Washington, D.C. for ages 8-12. The reading circle was a safe space for young readers to read positive social justice stories, learn about community activism, and think about ways they too can be community leaders.
